Arduino

Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. 

It actually is a single-board microcontroller designed around an Atmega328 with an USB interface, 6 analog inputs, as well as 14 digital I/O pins which allow to attach various extension boards or applications. The integrated development environment (IDE) is open source and allows to write programs for Arduino using Processing language.

Of course, right from the first experiments, blending Arduino with two stroke motorcycles was inevitable. Lots of people have constructed a lot of useful staff, from shift lights and data loggers up to complete CDI units...!

  1. This could be interesting to see what people come up with.
    You could (assuming you were skilled in this kind of thing) potentially make a very useful product as a gap forms in the 2 stroke market as all the big boys go bust or move on with the times.

  2. Well, anything on mind? I've run out of ideas, I think I'm getting old. :)

  3. Hi guies, I've made a lot based on Arduino boards. With the one on the picture and some other modules, I monitor exhaust T° and record datalogging T°/RPM for some runs, to help with carb or ignition advance tuning(on 125 TDR).
    Nick, i wish I could be your neighbour, we have much common interest. Maybe you could have a look on some videos on my DailyMotion channel, some of them show some of my projects. This one for exemple http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xv4b3l
